Rise celebrates International Women's Day

dock10 was delighted to host the official Northern Rise celebrations for International Women's Day 2024. The event puts a worldwide focus on the women's rights movement, brought together the regional Rise network to meet and listen to a panel discussion.

The event featured two esteemed Rise mentors, Morwen Williams and Katie Colledge, along with two exceptional Rise mentee alumni, Zoë Kennedy and Hannah Robinson. They shared invaluable insights and experiences from the Rise Mentoring Programme in a dynamic discussion moderated by Charlotte Wheeler, Rise Board Member and Director of the Broadcast Sport & Tech Group. The insightful panel discussion was followed by a networking drinks reception that provided Rise members with the perfect opportunity to network and connect with like-minded professionals.
